WRT54G2 Cisco Linksys wireless router randomly disconnecting clients. What should I do?

My wireless router is driving me insane. After trying everything I know (changing wireless channels, upgrading the firmware) should I just give up, throw money at the problem and upgrade to what seems to be the top of the line? [more inside]

WiFi makes router halt <2 minutes after boot

My Linksys WRT54G becomes unresponsive about 2 minutes after boot if the WiFi is on. This prevents Internet access even for wired clients. This does not happen if I quickly get into the router at boot and disable WiFi. Any ideas? Should I move to DD-WRT? [more inside]

My Wifi is Cursed

I'm having strange Wireless issues. I've tried two PCI cards (they were both LINKSYS WMP11 PCI Wireless-B Adapter) and a USB dongle (Netgear WG111T USB) in Windows XP and Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. Any time I get to the point where the wireless connection is being made, the computer completely freezes. No keyboard or mouse response at all. I have to shut the computer's power off. Any suggestions? [more inside]

Can you plug two WRT54Gs into a router?

Is there any reason I wouldn't be able to plug two Linksys WRT54G WiFi devices into a Linksys BEFSR81 LAN router? Will the WRT54G's play nice or will they fight with one another, requiring configuration to be done? SSIDs will be different of course.

Problem with WiFi

How come when my laptop is jacked into an Ethernet cable (going to a regular router then to DSL) my Internet connection works fine, but when I jack my Linksys WRT54G Wifi Router into the same cable and connect through my wireless card, I don't have an Internet connection? The Linksys front-end shows a good connection to the WiFi. [more inside]

Best Alternative Linksys Firmware?

As seen here, there are a fair number of alternative firmwares for the popular Linksys WRT54G line of WiFi access points. I'm curious which ones are considered mature and worth investigating? Obviously Sveasoft's offering, but what else should I be testing?
